So, I’ve been a little bit of a slacker about getting these things posted and getting pictures taken of my darling boys, but with the help of my mom and my husband. I was able to get some good pictures of both boys over a couple weeks.
Let’s start with the big ole birthday boy Spencer. He turned 4 this month!! It’s seems to crazy that I have a 4 year old, but I do. He is crazy funny, and sometimes a little frustrating. He is the best big brother and most of the time his a great helper for his mommy.
Some important things that have happened to Spencer this last year:
- He learned how to use the potty. Yeah!
- He was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome
- He became a big brother
- He rode a roller coaster for the first time
- He started school (Pre-Pre-K)
His 4 year old well child check up results:
- Height: 3’8″ (44 inches) – 99%
- Weight: 40.6 lbs – 82%
We recently did a little interview. Here are his answers:
What is your name: Spencer
How old are you? (holds up 4 fingers and after some prodding) 4
What is your favorite color? slimy things (our most recent batch of slime is green, but I’m pretty sure his favorite color is orange).
Who is your best friend? Nehemiah (a new friend from school)
Favorite animal? sheep
What do you want to be when you’re all grown up? a dragon
What is your favorite movie? [Curious] George, the show not the movie. The George movie is scary.
What is your favorite book? the dragon book (not sure what book this is, but I’m pretty sure his favorites are Curious George books).
What makes you happy? Curious George
What makes you sad? the spinning thing at Crest (a Christmas inflatable that has a spinning bar type thing)
What is your favorite food? sandwich (plain peanut butter with not jelly or crust, cut into 2 rectangles or triangles)
What is your favorite song? a pretend song (he’s not really a fan of singing or other singing. But has been making up nonsense songs that entertain Matthew)
What games do you like? the teleporter one (It’s called Jetpacks. He also is rather good at Bad Piggies and Where’s my Water)
Here’s some pictures from his birthday:
He got a marble track which is LOVES and some Imaginets (shaped magnets that you build pictures out of). He also got plenty of clothes, but we were trying to only get him a couple toys that we knew he’d like and actually play with. It seems to have worked this time.
Now on to my little cutie, Matthew. He’s six months only now. It’s a little crazy how he just fits and it seems like he’s always been here. When I think about the time before we had Matthew, it almost feels like something is missing, ALMOST. It wasn’t at that point, but anyway.
At six months, Matthew is a really happy kid. Some important things that have happened to him recently:
- He’s learned how to roll over
- He prefers to sleep on his tummy
- He loves to jump in his jumper or play in his exersaucer
- He LOVES to eat. We like to call him a Chow Hound
- His favorite foods include: Pears, Bananas, Sweet Potato, Oatmeal and Momma Milk
- Started November with no teeth, but finished it with 4!
Matthew’s Six Month Statics
Height: 28 inches – 92%
Weight: 19lbs 1/2oz – 75%
Head size: 43.5 cm – 50%
And for the best part. More pictures of the little cutie.
I thought this would be interesting to see side by side. Brothers. Aren’t they cute?
